Turn in Your Toes and Live Long.
Oklahoma City, Okla. (Autocast
er) Dr. W. Lee Austin, attending
the Southern Convention of Chirop
odists, says persons who walk pigeon-toed
may live to be centenar
ians. This is the way he explains
"One step in six is saved In walk
ing slightly pigeon-toed because
one rises higher on his feet and con
sequently takes longer strides.
Pointing the toes outward causes
the body to be thrown out of align
ment, thus infecting the hip bone
'Spinal trouble means worry and
disruption of the nervous system,
and upset nerves lead to indigestion."
Farmer Finds Out His "Ghost" May
Net Hhn a Fortune,
Campbellfort, Ont, (Autocaster)
Frank Keating, Seymour Town
ship farmer, expects to be made
fabulously rich by the most terri
fying "ghost" ever raised in this
In Keating's house there has been
blood-curdling pounding under the
floors, the water has been unfit to
drink, and other manifestations led
to the belief that a ghost was mak
ing it a habitat
The scare created caused exten
sive investigation, and it developed
that the strange disturbances were
caused by a natural gas escaping
in the Keating cellar. Now Keat
ing has got in touch with oil com
panies, and expects oil men to take
options on the farm.
He believes that either oil or gas
underlies his whole farm. At vari
ous points throughout the district
gas has been found in small quanti
ties when wells were dug.
Saved From Suicide by Cop's
New York (Autocater) Philip
Leary decided to commit suicide,
and jumped off a pier in the East
A policeman saw nim, concluded
he was drowning and threw him a
rope. He did not touch it
The rope sank beside him, the
policeman hauled it out and made
another cast Again he spurned it
The policeman then understood the
man was committing suicide, and
drew his pistol.
"If you don't come out of the
water at once I'll shoot you," threat
ened the officer of the law.
Leary, who had jumped in to end
it all, clambered out of the water
lest he be killed!

Many new alfalfa seedings thru
Oregon are rather Weedy at this
season, reports G. R. Hyslop, agron
imist of the experiment station, fol
lowing an extensive trip. It is de
sirable now .to clip such fields to
prevent shading the alfalfa. Where
planting is not weedy it is best let
go to the bloom stage when it can
be cut for hay.
Frequent inquiries regarding the
cause of paralysis are being receiv
ed from Oregon poultrymen by the
poultry pathologist at the experi
ment station. While the cause is
not definitely known, opinion is that
the disease results from some form
of infection where rigid sanitation
is not carried out, savs Dr. W. T.
Johnson. The chief points to bear
in mind in sanitation are rearing
fowls in small units of not to ex
ceed 500 chicks, using new ground
for brooding and distributing the
fowls out on the range as soon as
This season is the best time to

field seed will be saved for next
year, remind the farm crop special
ists. A good method Is to go thru
this part of the Held and pull out
mixed varieties, vetch, wild radish,
cockle and other Inseparable weeds.
Wild radish in particular is increas
ing as a serious pest in grain fields.
Cane maggots which cause "lim
ber neck" on new shoots of black
caps and loganberries are not of
serious economic .importance In Or

is scanty. In such cases the Injured

NEW KATES NOW EFFECTIVE.
Beginning July 1st books sent
from and returned to free public
libraries receive a greatly decreas
ed rate provided in a bill recently
passed by Congress, and amended
through the efforts of the Oregon
State library and the Orgeon sena
tors, following the library's protest
against a proposed increase. The
new rate omits altogether the for
mer service charge of two cents per
package, reduces the cost of the
initial pound from five and six cents
to a flat rate of three cents,
throughout the state. All addition
al pounds in the third zone will cost
one cent instead of two cents each.
The state thus becomes one zone for
library books, which receive a pref
The State library In 1927 sent out
to its patrons 23,631 packages of
books. The Initial saving on these,
regardless of zone and weight,
would be $1,150, which will accrue
to the benefit of the country patrons
of the library, as they refund the
postage charges when the books are
returned. The State library esti
mates a saving of from $3,000 to
$3,500 a year to its patrons, and a
great Increase In the mail order use
of state, county and city libraries.
Senator Steiwer gave this bill spec
ial attention in response to the re
quests of the trustees of Oregon

Common Sense Fads
A merchant doesn't invest his money for advertising
merely to see his name in print.
He is too much of a business man to part with his dol
lars unless there is a good prospect of obtaining a legitimate
return upon his investment.
He doesn't advertise goods that he can't recommend,
because he knows he can't fool all the people all the time, and
that such a policy would eventually put him out of business.
He doesn't gouge his customers, because he knows they
would go elsewhere and buy for less money, and that would
be the end of him.
It is reasonable to presume, then, that when he does
advertise an article, that article is worth having and the price
is within reason.
When you buy from a local merchant, that merchant's
reputation for square dealing is behind the goods you buy.
Keep these common sense facts in mind when you go
to buy and make the advertisemnts your guide, and you will
make no mistake. Huntsville, Texas, Item.
